As we have become more and more acquainted with each of the women in I Married the War, we are increasingly inspired by their personal stories. For example, Dr. Precious Goodson gave up her teaching career–a lifetime dream–to become a full-time caregiver for her husband, Leonard, after he was injured during his service to our country. But she still had a passion for learning and education, and found a way to earn a doctorate from home. Her dissertation shines a light on eLearning for caregivers.
Her path forward is admirable as she has now begun sharing her newfound knowledge in order to help other caregivers around the world. In today’s blog at War Changes Lives: A Military Caregiver’s Journey, we learn of her current effort as a speaker at the ACRM conference in Chicago. Read more about it in her blog here.
You can also watch a recent interview with Precious here, where she spoke with Dave Nassaney of The Caregiver’s Caregiver about her life that has shifted so dramatically, yet is still very fulfilling.
We are eager for you to hear her story, along with that of other inspiring military caregivers, in I Married the War which will be released in 2020.
